I drew this comic for a Pecha Kucha a number of years ago – 2011 – and it’s about something that happened in 1995. I’ve had it sitting around ever since then and haven’t really known what to do with it, so I thought I would share it with you. The text is a touch on the small side but you can zoom in to read it. I didn’t think it was a comic – I thought it was more of a story – but then, when I was reading Dylan Horrocks’ Incomplete Works I noticed that he had comics that worked like this too.

Do you see on my side bar that you can pre-order issues of Let Me Be Frank #5? I’m getting copies sent to me as I type. The Felt link should go live soon, if it isn’t live already.

    Was my barnet that curly? I’m extremely thankful for the coarseness of silver. I remember your millinery very well. Was it coral fuchsia? That might be the NYC look ca. Thanksgiving 2002, but the memory blends well. Do more.

    ooh I love the moody blues and the unfolding narrative — which is as moodily poetic as the flailing curtains. Magnificent! And the spooky cow skull and the haunted house. It reminded me of the haunted student flat I lived in once. Ah!

    Sarah, I haven’t yet read all of your works but I can say I love what I’ve seen so far. Its a unique art style which is quite refreshing, it’s got its own character. Do you do all the art by hand? My criticism of this latest work however, and it may be me being a bit of a tech dunce. It was really hard to read it, I couldn’t finish it all as my eyes were hurting from squinting. I kind of got the gist of things but I’m sure if I could read it all there wouldn’t be so many blanks for me.

    Keep up the work though! Well done.

      Thank you! And yes, that text is a bit borderline. I initially created it for a zine. Next comic will more legible 🙂
